Breach at Sea-Tac Airport leads to evacuations of some concourses, Port of Seattle says

A security breach at Sea-Tac Airport caused concourses B and C to be evacuated tonight, according to a Port of Seattle statement.

All passengers were rescreened and all issues had been resolved by 9:41 p.m., according to port officials.

Further details about the breach weren’t immediately available, but an airport spokesman told KING-TV that someone went into a secure area through an exit at about 7:30 p.m.

Many outbound flights were delayed as a result of passengers being taken back through security checkpoints to be rescreened, KING reported.
